Sheeran’s introspective and heartfelt new album, -, is now available to stream on Apple Music. The 14-track album was produced by The National’s Aaron Dessner. In his Apple Music Live performance, Sheeran will hone in on the series of life events that led him to pen the album.
“I’m delighted to share my Subtract album show with you,” Sheeran said. “I was really nervous on the day, as it was my first time performing the new album tracks. The show was brought to life by Aaron and the incredible band, and it was an honor to stand beside them. It was an emotional night, but I’m so pleased we got to document it.”
